Can't let this ride. Phil and Jerry were a synergistic pair - they powered each other along.

I'll give you a small example from a show that is very rapidly climbing to the top of my all time list - Roosevelt Stadium 8-6-74. Listen to El Paso - hear the way Phil and Jerry produce effortlessly twining, dancing lines that weave in and out of each other. and that just on a 'cowboy' song. And then listen to the majestic run of Sugar Magnolia-He's Gone-Truckin'- Spanish Jam- Other One Jam-The Other One -Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad -Sunshine Daydream that ends the second set. Phil is absolutely all over this.

Never, never under estimate what Phil brought to this band.

My good man--you are still with us? May have missed my weather queries below, or perhaps (do tell me) just ignored it as inappropriate forum fodder, but is it finally good and cold and wet?

And, I take it you are a 70s 'man' vis a vis Dead prefs?

Just popped back for a moment, Will. Apologies for the lack of a reply earlier. We had some snow yesterday (my daughter was thrilled - never seen her get out of bed so fast on a school day) but it's all gone now. Guess that was our winter.

If I had to stake a claim to a Dead period I'd go for 70-74 - does that sound reasonable? But I'm very open to exploring outside those parameters. Have you ever listened to any of the really early Jerry stuff like the Wildwood Boys and Black Mountain Boys from 63 and 64? That's just so much fun!

No sweat. Thanks for the weather update; thanks to Br Air, my son may be spending a few days there in the near future as he travels home from eastern Europe for a break.

70-74 is a damn fine period, period. And yes, I love that early, early stuff...jug band excellence. Really great seeing and hearing that stuff that has come to light of late.

Thanks...hope you didn't mind my mis spelling in the thread below, but when you came out 'Dark Hole' I just couldn't correct it...

There may be many here among us who wish I would fall in said "Dark Hole".

Actually, sir, I have questions about your name, questions about you, questions about your parents, questions about the Dark Hole from whence you came.

In light of all this "asshole" stuff, does it not seem more than coincidence that the dark hollow in question is "where the sun don't ever shine?"

And you will have to be wittier than "blow me" this time.

I await your reply.

First off, let me start by saying Blow Me.

Sorry, I was provoked.

Second, lets address your questions individually:

1. Name: Love the song, however it in no way reflects any sexual proclivity I may have towards dark nether regions other than those possesed by legal spouse.

2. Me: Not sure what you're looking for on this one, so I'll take a stab at it: I'm 40ish, tall, brown hair, brown eyes; I like long walks on the beach in the rain and puppies. Mean people and war turn me off. If you need any more info than that, it'll cost you dinner and a movie.

3. Parents: At least I know who mine are.

4. Dark Hole from Whence I Came: Again, lets leave my mother out of this, shall we?

Hey--I can only assume you jerk my chain...

I will find you amazing quotes by Ron, and astounding interactions between him and (I grant you) the 'leader of the band,' but I will not tolerate an UNCARING attitude.

You get another pass, but you are reminded.

Yes, I was talking to you...hmmm, can you say it like DeNiro? Just not wanting you to 'get away' with dissing Phil by your statement that the bass player isn't worth 'caring' about...

Nothing serious--just returning your serve.
